The Warlock → The Clanlord

I'm building a renegade warlock as well. Logistics, attack, defense, summoning, sorcery :)

druids, magi (waters, pits)

I guess the question should be obvious.

You spot lots of druids/elders/magi/archmagi.

Under what circumstances would you attack them confidently? What kind of heroes? What kind of armies? How to fight?

How to fight water elementals/pit fiends/pit lords? What's the difference?

you can say what you will, but H4 was a disaster. ok, the graphics was nice (even nicer imho than H5). but to change the rules in that way was like... i can't explain the foolishness. imagine changing movement rules for peons in chess, a total disaster.

The Warlock → The Clanlord

I only talked on-topic in this thread. I think I'm still going to get most of the mines and resources, probably even the druid elders will be killed (I have tactics + grim raiders + blood furies). I cannot afford castle or Citadel though. I can build it, but then I won't be able to buy the creatures...

The Warlock → The Clanlord

I hate this map. :(

Archers are everywhere where tehy shouldn't be.. and of course the gold mine is guarded by lots of elder druids, which are close to impossible to fight. Actually, I have 3 stacks of elder druids, 1 stack of magi and 1 stack of liches ...



it's like game over I guess

The Warlock → The Clanlord

Actually, the Blood Maiden dwelling can't be taken too fast... it is guarded by horde of steel golems and lots of minotaurs (both have to be defeated)... okay blood furies might help here (the golems can be hit and run)... Okay I took it fast by abusing Blood Furies and the scout dwelling too. The g...

Mantises are usually more practical, but yes, waters let you win fights insane odds. On campaign maps I won countless of fights by just having the summon waters spell... or some maps just having some waters, low level hero and sprites by massing quicksand. Flyers can be stopped by bind flyer and som...

Sorry, not getting more memory. In the meantime, I read into the text files in the pak... But I could only find some of the texts. Usually the startup texts and the conversations during the map. Where can I find the rest? For carryover I was asking cause I finally just downloaded a save... and since...

question to modders - performance

Hi all! I'm playing the game on 256mb memory and it won't change anytime soon. So I often get crappy framerates, save and load takes forever, going into castles takes long and sometimes switching between heroes too (because the game tries to move the camera between the two hero positions smoothly). ...

There is: you backup it (I'd never change game files without backing them up unless I know for 100% what works and how).

In heroes 3 necro and conflux are overpowered (a lot)... usually no one can compete with them. The rest are okay. In heroes 4 (original) death is insanely overpowered. So much overpowered it's not funny. No one can compete with them unless playing on special maps with special rules. They raise vampi...

Actually, any 4/5 moving creature can be hit and run provided you have enough initiative advantage and time. And that the opponent can't get morale, or at least won't get it too often. It doesn't really matter how many groups they have. Or at least not much. Just use more than 1 fodder for safety an...

I got week of the festival with 1610 gold left on week 3 on the 4th inferno map. Okay, I'll still win since I captured all the green castles on the surface (except the ultimate one), but this is not funny at all. That's 77k gold and 14 of all precious resources right out the window. It killed all th...
